first set better than second
killer start out of the gates and the row jimmy is terrific as bob broken chord riffing (whatever one may call it) beautifully helps shape the tune.
iko and stranger pretty hot set 2 openers and show didnt fade, per se, but the energy and jamming leveled off.
regardless, love the show... check out bob's stellar work on row jimmy :)
Very good show . Well played with much energy. Band seems in high spirits with killer playing by Jerry and Phil and all really.

Sorry about the caps. Yes these shows were not as good as 82 or 83 but still a lot of fun.
And for your know it all info there were many of us who attended every show this year also. Gets 4 stars because its the frost. And recorded by the masters of taping
I saw every frost show, and like the majority of shows '87-'89, this was a lame two-night stand. low energy, tinny sound, no improv, no chances, tame overall, bad setlist..yes the late-'80;s sucked, even at the gorgeous Frost. So glad I saw most of my shows '72-'86. I still prefer the Greek but this place was just great. Great recording as always. As for '87, Pittsburgh and Roanoke were good, one or two of the MSG shows, the night they did Dew at Cap Centre, other than that not much goin on. As for Frost I loved every show from '82, '83 and '85.

I can't believe I'm saying this, but...
Jboyaquar is right.
Little Bunny Foo Foo is, actually, the highlight of the show. Download d1t05_vbr.mp3 and move on.

..... Do "listen to the 2 star review". (But certainly decide for yourself).
Always good to be honest when there are so many great shows, and we have the opportunity to warn others about one we thought was just so-so. Good to keep the judicious opinions flowing...

UN FRIGGIN' REAL
Yes, the show, the recording, and the fact that someone could give this two stars! I have to up the average on this one so people don't overlook it while searching the archives. Equipment problems aside this is the Frost. This place was pure magic. This is one of the best sounding recordings we have from the Frost. Most Frost tapes suffer from a strange midrange problem. This is one of the better sounding from the greatest venue ever. Anything but raves about a Dead show at the Frost is coming from someone who was not there.
